Sweet August

I can't think of a better way to end July and welcome  August than with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a delicious piece of White Texas Sheet Cake.  This Taste of Home magazine recipe has been in my recipe collection file since 1993 but today was my first time to bake and serve it to my family.  It was easy to make and  a perfect Sunday dessert to serve the family!

White Texas Sheet Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 eggs,beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar,sifted
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional


In a large saucepan, bring butter and water to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in flour,sugar,eggs, sour cream, almond extract, salt and baking soda until smooth. Pour into a greased 15-in x 10-in. baking pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until cake is golden and tests done. Cool for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, for frosting, combine butter and milk in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; add sugar and extract and mix well. Stir in walnuts if desired; spread over warm cake.

Yield: 16-20 servings
